The Simple Truth

TWO DIFFERENT MESSIAHS, SAME BOOK: Yahshua (salvation) is the Son of Yahuah (who is the great I AM). Jesus (son of Zeus) is the Sun of God (Baal's sun god). Yahshua, upheld the laws of Yahuah. In Jesus we no longer have to keep the law. Yahshua was born (in the flesh) in October during Tabernacles. Jesus was said to be born Dec 25th during winter salstice. Yahshua described in scripture as bronze with wooley hair. Jesus painted as white with long hair. Yahshua kept the Sabbath and all biblical feast days. Jesus is the head of man instituted feast days. Yahshua is the Hebrew Messiah in scripture. Jesus is the Greek Messiah Zeus. Only one of them walked this earth and took on the sins of the world, and his name was not JESUS!. IT WAS YEHOSHUA HAMASHIAC AKA YAHSHUA YAH IS SALVATAION AKA YAHWEH EHYEH ASHER EHYEH i have concluded my research...and now i live for and by YAHWEH my true HEAVENLY FATHER.....i will do my best to keep the laws that apply to myself in the old testament for i know there are 613 commandments and counting in which not all apply to myself.....i just hope and pray that the church rise to the truth of Israelites...thank you for all adn YAH BLESS IN YEHOSHUA NAME The Feast of Tabernacles Have you ever noticed that, apart from Christmas, all other Christian festivals coincide with Jewish festivals? Jesus died on the eve of Passover (Pesach in Hebrew) (Jn. 19:14, 31), which was Nisan 14 (Ex. 12:6, Lev. 23:5), i.e. in April, just as the lambs were being killed (1 Pet. 1:19). The Holy Spirit was given at Pentecost (Shavuot in Hebrew) (Acts 2:1), which commemorates the giving of the Law in Leviticus (Vayikrah in Hebrew) (Lev. 23:15-16). Paul contrasts the two (Rom. 8:2) and, while the original Pentecost caused 3000 people to die (Ex. 32:28), the new Pentecost gave life to 3000 people (Acts 2:41) – and to us too! (2 Cor. 3:6). Passover lasted for seven days (Lev. 23:8); Pentecost was 50 days later (on Sivan 6). So, is it therefore not possible that God arranged the birth of Christ to coincide with that other great Jewish festival, the Feast of Tabernacles? (Succot in Hebrew). This feast commemorates the provision of manna in the desert while the Israelites were living in tents (or "tabernacles"). It took place on Tishri 15 (Lev. 23:34) and it is also the Jewish harvest festival. Thus, if this theory is correct, Jesus was born on Monday September 25th, 6 BC (the Gregorian date corresponding to the Hebrew date of Tishri 15, 3756 AM) – but is there any evidence to back up this claim? Yes – in fact, there's load of it! Evidence for Jesus being born at the Feast of Tabernacles The Jews expected the Messiah (Mashiach in Hebrew) to appear at the Feast of Tabernacles – this is why Jesus's sceptical brothers taunted him to go to it (Jn. 7:2-3). What was the basis of this expectation? Jeremiah 23:5-6 tells us that the Messiah would be a "Branch from David's line". Zechariah prophesies that the Branch will wipe away our guilt (Zech. 3:9), that he will build the temple of the Lord and have royal dignity (Zech. 6:12-13), and that "on that day", the Line of David will be "like the Angel of the Lord going before them" (Zech. 12:8). When will "that day" be? It will be the Feast of Tabernacles! Zech. 14:16 tells us that that is when all nations are commanded to celebrate “that day”. Acts 15:16, quoting Amos 9:11, explains that God has returned to re-build David's tabernacle, while Ezekial 37:24-28 prophesies that David, the servant shepherd, will become king (melech in Hebrew) and that His people will live "under the shelter of my dwelling". Isaiah (Yishaiyahu in Hebrew) explains that the Lord will save us in Jerusalem (Yerushali'im in Hebrew) – a "city of feasts" and a "sturdy tent" (Is. 33:20-22) – and that His throne shall be set up in David's tent (Is. 16:5). In John 1:14, the word “dwelled” is literally “tabernacled” in the Greek – and this comes as the climax to John’s “version” of the story of Christ’s incarnation. One ceremony associated with the Feast of Tabernacles involved lights. Each afternoon of the seven days, priests and pilgrims gathered at the Temple. Four large oil lamps illuminated the Court of the Women. The illumination from these lamps symbolized two things: The Shekinah (visible presence) of God which filled the Temple (1 Ki. 8:10–11). The Ha’or Gadol (the Great Light) who would come and bring light to those who were spiritually dead and dwelling in darkness (Is. 9:2). John begins his gospel with a description of Christ coming into the world, and his description contains multiple references to light (ch. 1 vv. 4-5, 7-9) – another big clue that Christ came into the world at the Feast of Tabernacles. According to Lev. 23:42, during Succot, Jewish families construct a flimsy shelter called a "Succah" (a tabernacle). In the Succah, the ceremony of "Ushpizin" takes place, in which they welcome God’s Shekinah (glory or presence) (cf. Lk. 2:9) and the seven "faithful shepherds" (Abraham/Avraham, Isaac/Yitzchak, Jacob/Yaacov, Joseph/Yosef, Moses/Moshe, Aaron/Aharon and David). Could this be why the angel appeared to a group of shepherds (Lk. 2:8)? Moreover, in the Ushpizin, the "faithful shepherds" are there to observe how their descendants are fulfilling God's commandments; this is similar to the shepherds' purpose – "to see this thing that has happened" (Lk. 2:15) – and where did they go to see Jesus but a flimsy shelter which we have traditionally called a "stable" but which was probably a Succah? Indeed, the Greek word for "manger" (Lk. 2:7, 12, 16) was probably the closest translation Luke could find for "Succah". The Feast of Tabernacles (Succot) is known as “the season of joy”, and it is also known as “the festival of the nations” – notice how many times the words “nation” and “nations” are mentioned in Zech. 14:16-19. The angel’s announcement of Jesus’s birth to the shepherds (Lk. 2:10) is “I bring you tidings of great joy to all mankind” (i.e. to all nations). This is obviously a “Tabernacles” greeting! Jesus was circumcised eight days after His birth (Lk. 2:21) in accordance with scripture (Gen. 17:12). This would correspond to the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles (Tishri 21), which was originally called "Shemini Atzeret" (or the "Eighth day of Solemn Assembly"), and later called "Simchat Torah" (or "Rejoicing in the Torah"), when the annual cycle of Torah readings begins again at Genesis (Bereshit in Hebrew). This is considered to be a time of "fulfilment" of the Torah. This would seem to be a fitting time, since Jesus came "not to abolish the Law but to fulfil it" (Mt. 5:17). Jesus Himself gives hints that His incarnation is connected to the Feast of Tabernacles. He compared the manna of the Feast with Himself as the "real bread that comes down from Heaven" (Jn. 6:31-58), and He said all of this "as the Feast of Tabernacles was close at hand" (Jn. 7:2). The last day of the Feast was when Jesus chose to speak of Himself as "living water"; this was appropriate because the Feast celebrates the harvest and the end of the Summer drought. Was Isaiah hinting at a “Tabernacles Christmas” when he spoke of a virgin bearing a son called Emmanuel who would eat honey (Is. 7:13-15)? When the Israelites first saw manna, at the time when they were living in the desert in tents, they said “Man-hu?” (“What is that?”) (Ex. 16:15) and it tasted like honey (Ex. 16:31). Could “Emmanuel” (“God with us”) be a pun on “God is our manna”? (cf. Jn. 6:48). At the transfiguration, is it coincidence that Peter wants to make tents (rather than, say, houses) for Moses (who instigated the Feast of Tabernacles), Elijah (Eliyahu in Hebrew) (who was to be the forerunner of Christ’s coming, see Mal. 4:5) and Jesus (who is the One who has come)? Is it also a coincidence that John the Baptist, who is identified with Elijah (Mt. 11:14), ate wild honey (Mk. 1:6)? The Feast of Tabernacles celebrates how the Israelites were completely dependent on God as they wandered for 40 years in the desert and were led by “a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night” (Ex. 13:21-22). Because of this experience, Jews recall that “God is with us”. Again, there was a fiery (“bright”) cloud at Christ’s transfiguration (Mt. 17:5). Finally, Rev. 21:2-3 talks of a wedding feast where God has his "tabernacle among men" and (literally) "God-with-us shall Himself be their God" – i.e. Emmanuel. And where do all the best wedding feasts take place (even today)? Why, in a marquee, of course – which is a big tent! Incidentally, on the 8th day of the Feast of Tabernacles (Lev. 23:36), i.e. Tishri 22, Jews hold a wedding ceremony and get "married" to the Law (a scroll held by a rabbi under the canopy) (Deut. 31:10-11). One day, it will be the "Wedding of the Lamb" (Rev. 19:7-8), when we will all be given clean clothes (see also Mt. 22:1-14). Does this suggest that the Second Coming will also take place at the Feast of Tabernacles? The fact that it is immediately preceded by the Feast of Trumpets (Lev. 23:23-25), on Tishri 1, should settle the matter, for the Second Coming will be preceded by a fanfare of trumpets (Mt. 24:31, 1 Cor. 15:52, 1 Thes. 4:16, Rev. 11:15). Does it matter? If it was important enough to God that Jesus's birth should be at this time, and if it was important enough to put so much evidence in the Bible, then it should be important to us too!

Tetragrammaton- The Word dieth not. The names are all for God. For they are many, but none are beside the Father. Even the Son who Exhaulteth the Father By Atonement. The old law has been fulfilled. The new law is that of Fire and Charity. For the world lies in darkness when we care not for all of them. They are our Fathers and the Glory of the Father is to bring about Immortality and Eternal Life for his Children, which is All of them that choose Father to be their Father. And Choose the Son to be their King and to trust, serve, devote, and become perfect like unto Jesus the very Christ. The same Yahweh, the same Emanuel, the Same Prince of Peace, the same Adonai the name given because to speak the name of the Great I AM was death in the old law. Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ Sencond Repentance Third Baptism by immersion for the remission of Sins Fourth By the laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost, even that spirit that brings light to Dark places, and the dark comprehendeth it not.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
